Dundee fire hall pushed back again
Municipal Delays due to weather and materials shortages means a reset of the completion date to June
More than 40 days of weather delays has caught up with the effort to build a new fire station in Dundee, Chief John Stock said Friday, and its pushing the opening date back once again.
The current schedule shows for us to move over June 20, with the final completion of the entire project July 25, he said. Weve had quite a few weather delays, we had some supply delay issues its just those catching up here at the end. This is just the reality of adding them on.
The original opening was slated for February, then March, then May 16. If all goes to plan, the next month will be spent installing sheetrock, painting, putting in the floors and finishing with the cabinetry
Its just those finishing details, Stock said.
Workers are waiting for drywall mudding to dry so they can move on to the next step.
Despite the delays, Stock said he isnt worried.
Were not in a rush, he said. It is most important to us involved here to get a quality project the first time. We want to make sure we dont cut any corners and do it right.
Construction on the new 17,500 square feet building started last summer and has a budget of $3.68 million.
